Bravo Edith and your organization for the initiative you will make the frontline staff work extra hard to save the nation from the pandemic! Shame on those who claim there is no covid. Should we say you just want to throw that money for nothing? A malawi ndi womvetsa chisoni maka SKC ndi JB? Ppo with their names yet nkumati kulibe matenda a covid zomvetsa chisoni kwabasi

Give the money directly to the flontline workers. Otherwise if you give the DPP thieves in government the obvious will happen

This is what we call good excellent administration. These are the type of leaders we need for Malawi to develop. If we could have more of such leaders Malawi would be a great place to live. Thank you Edith for your leadership. This is a good example for other companies to practice corporate responsibility. Some big corporations can not even make a donation of any kind for a year.
